A loan of $1,000 helped to buy stucco, paint, electrical outlets and wiring, so that she can finish three rooms in her home and rent them out.

Lupe's story

Lupe is married, and has six children; of whom two are school-aged, and four are already independent. They live in their own home, occupying three rooms. The house is located in the Sopocachi area of the city of La Paz.

Presently, she rents out rooms in her home, and also has her husband's salary, as they share the family's expenses for food, education, and payment of basic services.

She needs the loan to the finishing work on three rooms, as she wishes to rent them out and have more income. For this, she needs to buy stucco, paint, electrical outlets and wiring.

Lupe's dream is to cover university expenses for her two children, so that they can be professionals.

This is the fifth time she is applying for a loan with IMPRO, and the first time with Kiva.
